Roseanne Barr - Tv Bosses Axe Jeff Ross' Cinema Massacre Gag From Roast

Network bosses at Comedy Central in the U.S. have opted to axe a joke funnyman Jeff Ross made about the Colorado cinema massacre from the upcoming Roseanne Barr roast.
Ross poked fun at fellow roast guest Seth Green by suggesting he looked like suspect James Holmes during his appearance on the pre-taped comedy show - but the gag didn't go down well with TV executives.
And when the roast airs on 12 August (12), his ill-advised humour will be cut.
Ross also joked, "I'm kidding, you are not like James Holmes. At least he did something in a movie theatre that people remember!"
He isn't the first comic to time a gag about last month's (Jul12) massacre all wrong - Dane Cook apologised after joking about the tragedy during a stand-up show in Los Angeles a week after Holmes' alleged actions claimed the lives of 12 film fans.
